the motherboard supports it, and supports quad-core CPUs.

Having replaced my PSU, I now have a new problem. In games or scrolling in IE8, there is a loud buzzing noise coming from the CPU area. What could be done? I'm not sure if it's the CPU or the Northbridge,...


Electrostatic interference may also be the cause, for some reason, I'm not exactly sure of, there are PC's that emit this high-pitch squeal or noise when doing certain tasks on the PC, usually this can be tracked down to the sound system in the machine, but sometimes is not.

Also, some motherboards come with a safety feature that can cause the noise, it's called a voltage regulator, these can sometimes go bad, and while they may still function properly, the circuitry can emit these noises as over or under voltage is being rectified as it is passed through them. I have 3 servers here that used to do it untill i replaced the module, on a desktop motherboard, these are usually built into the motherboard circuitry and cannot be replaced.
